On tap from keg at the white horse in soho. Medium chestnut amber and initially opaque with a lovely white, medium cream foam residing. Scent is light musky floral properties and lightly caramelised malt. Taste is medium bodied chestnut bitter with very creamy texture and some resin. Finish is clean. Great bitter.

Pint on keg at Angel in the Field pub. A reasonably good bitter, but a bit on the watery side. Apart from that, no real flaws. A good beer to go with pub grub...

stravale (3150) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUL 30, 2013
Keg @ The Doo’cott, Edinburgh [290713]
Orange amber, clear, dense white thin head
Aroma of soft caramel, touch of honey, soft cereal
Taste as aroma, light toffee, soft cereal, rather dull, keg cersion poorer than cask
Palate - Soft carb, medium body. Finish as main flavour, soft fairly sweet malts, some soft cereal biscuit, slightly metallic
Overall - Nowhere near as good as cask, dull keg beer but still better than the macro bitter creamflow stuff

imdownthepub (15526) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2013
Keg at The Cittie of York, Holborn, London. Amber with short head. Tinny, carbonated, thin beer, some caramel quite sweetness. Not good.

Pint in Ad Lib, Glasgow (£3.60):
Bitter with an earthy malt aroma and some lighter fruit notes along with some caramel and a touch of burnt sugar. There is some apples and a few sweet malts too.
Toffee brown with a cream, thumb sized head on top that is white and holds pretty well.
Sweet malts and a very bitter taste kick things off along with a nutty taste and a touch of caramel from the nose. There is a fruity undertone with some bitterness towards the end.
Medium bodied and very cream with a nice, rounded bitter finish and a very smooth body. The balance in this one is quite nice too.

Bitter and a great example of the style with a great appearance and a nice balance throughout. There was some nice caramel malts and the hints of fruit were nice too.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Draft at Duke of Argyll. Soho, London. Light copper pour. Ligh aroma of caramel malts. Very drinkable but light flavor of caramel/sweet malts. Decent
